Segurista: NPC’s Rolando Andaya dumps Grace Poe for Rodrigo Duterte

Apr 30, 2016 @ 14:06

Camarines Sur Rep. Rolando Andaya has switched allegiance from independent presidential bet Grace Poe to Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte with just a week left before election day.

Andaya,, the chair of the Nationalist People’s Coalition in Camarines Sur, joined several Bicolano politikos during Duterte’s campaign rally in Bicol on 29 April 2016.

Andaya, formerly a Lakas-Kampi member, was among 200 politikos who defected to the NPC in September 2015 as as part of efforts to form an alliance to back Poe and his running mate Sen. Chiz Escudero.

The NPC had formally endorsed Poe and Escudero last February 2016.

Andaya is expected to retain his old post as chair of the House appropriations committee under a Duterte administration.
